Hawk Raised By Golden Eagles With Eagle Chicks #sonyalphagallery

Dale Matson

The Red Tailed Hawk (perched on right) was raise to fledge by Golden Eagles. I was fortunate to observe and document this entire process with photos and video from the beginning. I do not believe this has ever been reported before. The adult Golden has just brought food to the nest and the eagle chicks are competing for it. The eagle in possession of the food is covering it with his wings. The hawk has learned to wait for what is left over. I believe the hawk was brought to the nest by one of the Goldens.
